Time of the year again

Well, it’s almost the time of the year, when people are gathering for various religious, and holiday festivities. Personally, I’m gonna take 2 weeks off for my overdue long vacation for this working year. Well, I’m planning to get to do some personal things that I wanna do for a long time, but just got put off due to various reasons. Certainly, I still need to take care of my son. Glad that my wife is gonna take time off as well. So, we can do some family outings as well. I’m sure 2 weeks are gonna flied, but I will try to make the best out of it.

It is a bit early to talk about New Year resolution. Personally, unlike most people, I don’t really put much thought on those conventions that…well because today is so and so, we have to do this or that. If I feel like I need to change, I just change. If I need to plan, I just plan. January 1st is not necessary a new beginning for me, if I need to begin to do something, once my mind is set. Then, just do it, that’s it! So, when folks are planning to do that so-called New Year countdown, I’m just not into it. Still, I will take my son to go to see those Christmas decorations and related stuff. Though, I’m not that into those festivity spirits, I’m not gonna to deny my son’s chance to explore and enjoy those things himself. He is too young to know what’s going on, but I think he will enjoy them, and that’s what matter the most. I’m looking forward to have a good time with my wife and my son in these coming holidays.

Hello Joel -- How are you? I'm Joyce from Joyceyland. I just noticed that you've added a link to my blog. Thanks!
I always make New Year's resolution. (My husband NEVER makes them). A while back, my resolution was to learn Mandarin. I spoke almost none before, so I took some lessons and got to the ordering food / directing taxi level.
I guess I half achieved it. But it felt an awful lot like homework. I have a stressful job, so it wasn't fun to have more "homework" to do after work.
This year, I might repeat my Mandarin resolution (it's fallen behind again because I never use it), or I might pick something I actually enjoy -- like having a resolution to do more exercise and get in shape.
Anyway, I hope you enjoy the holidays with your wife and son.
